Lizette Salas should be midway through her first round at the Women's British Open on Thursday morning when Donald Trump arrives via helicopter to expected fanfare at his Turnberry resort.

Quite simply, Salas will have more important things on her mind.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady vowed on Wednesday to fight his four-game ''Deflategate'' suspension, and team owner Robert Kraft opened training camp by saying he continues to ''believe and unequivocally support'' the three-time Super Bowl MVP. ''It is completely incomprehensible to me that the league continues to take steps to disparage one of its all-time great players, and a man for whom I have the utmost respect,'' Kraft said. Taking the podium a day after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld Brady's suspension, Kraft said he didn't fight the team's penalty - a $1 million fine and the loss of two draft picks - because he thought the league would go easy on the star quarterback.

Spit Happens: Get Active This Summer With New Portable Spittoon


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Summertime means outdoor barbecues, baseball games and time at the beach or pool. Outdoor activities are plentiful and often, but for the 9 million smokeless tobacco users, they can present a conundrum. One of the problems for smokeless tobacco users is the unsightly, telltale "spit cup." For one, it can make others uneasy seeing a clear bottle sitting in a car, by the beach chair or on the deck in the backyard, never mind prompting uncomfortable conversation. Carrying a large chew-

This Spring, It's all About That Bass Fishing -- and Your Basic Gear


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - The days of using a stick, some string and a worm are as much a part of American culture as apple pie and baseball.

But for starters, set aside the rods, reels, rigs, jigs and tackle, it's also just as important to remember these items that are often overlooked: * Use sunscreen.

New Treatment for Undiagnosed Sports Injuries -- From Your Dentist


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - Sports-related injuries are common and, when an athlete is hurt, care follows a proven, long-standing protocol of rehabilitation.

Weeks, months or even years later, many of these players begin to experience headaches, TMJ/D, migraines, vertigo or tinnitus -- estimated to impact 50 million people in the U.S. to some degree. "Undiagnosed head trauma from sports inj

Taking Care on and off the Sports Field


Five words or less(NewsUSA) - It's one of the unfortunate truths of our obsession with sports: Coaches don't normally get much credit unless they take their teams all the way to a title. And yet, there actually still are some coaches -- let's call them the good guys -- who view at least a part of their jobs as helping to build character in their players while easing the mental and physical irritations that come with competition. "Coaches have the power to teach much more than the physical elements of the game,"
